The music series is an outreach ministry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church that offers the community a relaxing and entertaining musical break. Tell your friends!
St. Paul’s Music Series Board of Directors
Chairman: David Benson
The St. Paul’s Music Series has been a part of the musical life of the Meridian community for many years. The Series was established decades ago by the late Albert Weems, and the performances by talented performers over the years has been a part of a parish musical outreach program. However, with the onset of the pandemic, musicians were prevented from sharing their talents with our parish family and friends in our area.
Thursday, November 16, at 7 p.m. - “Music of Thanksgiving”
The St. Paul’s Music Series continues with a “Music of Thanksgiving” celebration. This evening event, held in the church sanctuary, will feature a number of soloists and a community choir; the audience will join in singing some of our favorite hymns of Thanksgiving, too. Although the music will be sacred, this is not a St. Paul’s parish service, but rather a community wide celebration of our tradition of Thanksgiving. For those interested in joining in song with the community choir, plan on attending a brief rehearsal from 6:00-6:30PM the night of the performance in the sanctuary. For further information as well as a digital copy of the music selections for the community choir, please contact David Benson at (601)693-2502.
To round out the calendar year, we are pleased and excited by the return of Capital Brass Thursday, Dec. 14, at noon. Capital Brass has long been one of our annual Music Series presentations and this December event always puts us in the spirit of Christmas.
In the new calendar year of 2024, more programs will be announced. As we do not have performances during Lent (and Lent comes very early next year), we are setting our sights on one event in January and a concluding gala to round out the season.
We are grateful to be able to renew this wonderful ministry of St. Paul’s. You should receive a letter soon confirming this announcement; for now, please mark your calendars for these exciting events in our parish and community life.
